Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
The letter may be a "disengagement" letter, if you had a consultation and did not actually file. The attorney is obligated to act in your best interests, and not leave you without representation, unless you have found someone else. Providing notice of disengagement is fairly typical and covers the attorney's potential liability, in case you actually wanted to file for bankruptcy and may have believed that the attorney had abandoned you.
That's about the only reason why an attorney would contact you. Attorneys are not permitted to initiate contact with potential clients, unless they have had previous contact initiated by the client -- so, anything other than a disengagement letter would likely be a violation of law.

There's no way for me to further evaluate the issue, without reviewing the letter. Otherwise, I'm just guessing at the purpose.
If you would like me to review the letter, I will send you an additional services offer. You may accept or decline at your convenience.
